Excellent varied climbing up the E (seaward) face of the Pinnacle. Mark Gommers removed a thorn tree from this after it split a rope. Star a few m L of RTS 1. The face past a carrot to the diagonal crackline L. Follow the crackline and then R to a thin seam. Up this to the the overhang, clip the bolt above and traverse 2m R. Straight up the wall past 3 more carrots. 2. As for RTS.
